Gorgeous Newborn Puppies: Name That Pup and Guess Their Breed!

There is nothing quite as cute as a puppy… unless it’s a newborn puppy. Their squishy lil faces, sharp pointy nails, and sweet faces are enough to melt even the most hardened heart.

As pet lovers, many of us can identify a dog’s breed simply by looking at him/her. But when it comes to newborn puppies, it can get confusing. While each is crazy cute, they are very similar looking, even deciphering a small breed from a larger breed can be trying when you are looking at photos. So we’ve decided to quiz Babble Pets’ readers with this fun slideshow.

Check out these adorable newborn puppies and see if you can name that breed!
